When my husband and I were looking for a ped. for our newborn (who is now 5), he wanted an MD and I wanted someone who used natural remedies. Dr. Springer was recommended to me time and again by my childbirth educator, midwives and Children's Hospital Employees.
He was absolutely wonderful in my interview with him. Then when DD was born, he amazed us with his nature and kindness to her. He introduced himself to her using her name and told her he was going have her show us what she could do as an infant, and what is normal. She was so calm and still is around him. After she was about 9 months old, I began using his nurses for well child, as I felt totally comfortable and my DD was never ill.
When DD#2 came along, I think she saw him only a couple times. The well child appts don't require that we see the doc, and I totally trust the nurses, Betsey and Sharon. They are wonderful!
Dr. Springer is not only an outstanding professional in his field, he seems to have excellent communication between all members of his staff, who are all stellar. The ones who appear to be weak links don't last long. You can be assured that Dr. Springer is out to hire only the best to care for your children.
Kids like him, too! On my first visit, Dr. Springer said he had some patients up until they were 21 and he would eventually have to encourage them to go to someone else! I think that's pretty sweet, and you'll find Dr. Springer very sweet.
Run, don't walk to get into this magnificent practice!
